7 Nightwing Comics That Should Inspire the New Movie

Things are sure looking up for Dick Grayson these days. Not only is he a big player in The LEGO Batman Movie, but now we’ve learned that director Chris McKay is apparently in talks to direct WB’s live-action Nightwing movie.

We doubt WB will have much trouble topping Dick’s last live-action appearance in 1997’s Batman & Robin. Even so, we hope the new movie will draw plenty of inspiration from Dick Grayson’s comic book adventures. There are a lot of classic stories to choose from, but here are the ones we think are the most important.

Pooch Hall on Parenting a Daughter with Cerebral Palsy: ‘I Want Her to Have as Much Normalcy as Possible’

Pooch Hall is a self-proclaimed “family man” — and that commitment is lived out both on and off screen.

Hall’s new movie Media — which premieres on TV One on Saturday — explores the drama and secrets behind a powerful family dynasty. In the film, Hall, 40, plays the hot-headed but protective eldest brother of the powerful Jones family, who is battling the competitive challenges of keeping their status and position in the communications industry.

“My character has a little bit of Godfather dynamic, as far as making sure his family is good,” Hall, 40, tells PEOPLE about his role. “The Jones family is about unity, strength, power and understanding how to stay on top. I hope when people watch Media, they walk away with a new definition of what it’s like to be a not so perfect but proud African American.”

Hall says doubling as an actor and living life as a family man with four children — Djanai, 18, Djordan, 8, Djaeda, 10, and Djulian, 14 months — is never easy. “As far as me, being an actor and a family man in this world that we are working in … it’s never going to be easy,” he says.

But when it comes to the parallels between the fictional Jones family and the real-life Hall family, he quips, “Both families aren’t playing around.”

Hall’s eldest daughter, Djanai, has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair. In support of their daughter and other special needs children, Hall and his wife, Linda, created the non-profit inClusion ClubHouse, where children with developmental disabilities can learn and play. Their ClubHouse will include five key spaces, including an arts and crafts “creation station” and a multi-sensory experience room.

“I want my daughter to have as much normalcy as possible. And other parents, who really wish they can have this for their daughter, or son, where they experience and exercise their normalcy in the world that we live in. … It’s real work,” he says about his family’s efforts to support the special needs community.

Hall also shares that he is excited for Djanai to be treated with equality at the ClubHouse. “I think I’m mostly excited about her being equal and her being like, You know what, I’m equal,” Hall explains. “My daughter, Djanai, is not looking at herself as I’m different. She will go, Okay, I’m part of this world and I am equal. She’s not looking at as far as I can’t walk or talk. My daughter is super fun, super dope.”

When the Ray Donovan actor isn’t filming, he says he spends as much time as possible with his family. And the ClubHouse, which is opening soon in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, will be a new space for focusing on family fun.

He adds that his Media cast has been extremely supportive of his family’s endeavor: “It’s crazy how much support I get. … I’ve been blessed.”

On Sunday, March 5, Hall and his wife will host a Celebrity Karaoke Night in L.A. to benefit their organizations, with proceeds going towards helping them continue offering much-needed programs for children with special needs and towards a building fund to open inClusion ClubHouse.

Media premieres Feb. 25 (8 p.m. ET) on TV One.

The Barbera Playbook

When Tengram Capital Partners purchased the majority stake in Luciano Barbera in October 2014, the private equity firm saw the brand as a dia-mond in the rough.
Although the label was well respected and had been around since the mid-Sixties, it had a small presence — particularly in the U.S. Its biggest customers were European specialty stores seeking luxury sportswear with a focus on knits.
But over the past 2 1/2 years, Tengram has built teams in New York and Milan to completely revamp the brand, touching everything from the product design and the marketing while expanding its wholesale and own-retail presence.
“We’ve created a playbook for the company,” said Todd Barrato, who joined Barbera as global chief executive officer when Tengram bought its controlling stake. Barrato was formerly the ceo of North American operations for Brioni. He’s also the son of former Brioni chief Joe Barrato.
“The brand was stagnant,” Barrato said. “It had a great name that was never jeopardized, but the family was not capable of taking it to the next level.”
Luciano Barbera, the man, was considered to be among the most elegant gentlemen in the world. His family owned the Carlo Barbera fabric mill in Biella, Italy. According to company

‘The Invisible Man’ Performance Artist and Photographer Liu Bolin About to Take a More Public View

ALL CLEAR: The Chinese performance artist and photographer Liu Bolin is the art world’s version of “The Invisible Man,” but he won’t be so hard to see in the months ahead.
Annie Leibovitz’s semitransparent shots of him in Moncler’s spring ads are just the start of a hectic work schedule. In April, Bolin will have solo exhibitions at the Gallery Magda Danysz in Shanghai, and at the Galerie Paris-Beijing in Paris. There will also be a performance at Centre Georges Pompidou and another at Festival Portrait(s) in Vichy, France later this year.
Before those get under way, the artist will speak May 11 at the “Art of Tomorrow” conference at the W Doha Hotel & Residences in Qatar. The upcoming blitz is a switch for the artist whose “Hiding in the City” series features self portraits in which he camouflages himself by painting himself to blend into his landscapes. “It’s my way to convey all the anxiety I feel for human beings,” the artist has said of the practice.
Along with brands like Guerlain, Fred, Renault and Ford, Bolin said his first fashion-related project was to hide five well-known designers — Jean Paul Gaultier, Alber Elbaz, Angela Missoni and Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier

Xu Zhi RTW Fall 2017

Like so many designers the London-based, Chinese-born Xu Zhi took the deconstructed route for fall, turning out a sophisticated, raw-edged collection full of patchwork jeans, supple napa leather, and lots of hand braiding and embroidery.
The designer showed his collection at Teatro Armani, and it stood up to that vast space, with pieces including wide-bottom, high-waist trousers pieced together with frayed, dark and faded denim fabrics. A dark denim suit came with cropped, fringed trousers.
Where there wasn’t a raw denim edge, there was fringe – silky and swingy from the hem of short dusty rose or light gray skirts; as fluttery bits of leather at the front of a short jacket, the hem of a long leather skirt or the zigzagging seams of other chiffon skirts. Zhi also twisted and embroidered delicate, hand-braided ropes of yarn into barely-there halter tops, which were among the stars of this polished, tightly edited show.
Backstage, the designer he was thinking about the tension between the fragile and the powerful. “I wanted to show human emotions through the fabric – pieces that look as if they’re falling apart, but are really holding together,” he said.

Chinese Photographer Ren Hang, Who Suffered From Depression, Dead at 29

HONG KONG –  One of China’s most talented young photographers, Ren Hang, has passed away.
WWD has reached out directly to Ren Hang’s studio. The news was confirmed by several who worked with him.
According to Taschen, who published the Beijing artist’s work, the 29-year-old took his own life on Thursday.
The book publisher also posted on Instagram: “Taschen is devastated by the death of Chinese photographer Ren Hang (1987-2017), a self-taught master of surrealistic, startling, and beautiful pictures, censored in his homeland, feted across the globe, and at the pioneering forefront of a gender inclusive world.”
Eli Klein of the Klein Sun Gallery also paid tribute saying: “Today we mourn the loss of Ren Hang, a talented and rising young photographer who passed away well before his time. @kleinsungallery was honored to host his solo exhibition last year and sends our heartfelt condolences to all of his loved ones.”
The controversial young artist, who had been arrested multiple times in his homeland and had his often sexually provocative work censored, appeared to struggle with depression. In a foreboding Weibo post on Jan. 27, he wrote: “Every year my wish is always the same: Die earlier.” He quickly followed it up with another post saying: “Hopefully this year

Stephen Colbert Takes Aim At Donald Trump’s Nuclear Arsenal Ambitions

Stephen Colbert picked apart President Donald Trump’s desire to ramp up America’s nuclear arsenal on Friday.

The “Late Show” host first poked fun at the way in which the commander in chief said Thursday that he wanted to make the U.S. the “top of the pack” when it came to nukes.

“Not sure if he means top dog or leader of the pack,” quipped Colbert, “but either way, he is not the sharpest knife on the Christmas tree.”

Taking on a more serious tone, Colbert called a new proliferation of nuclear weapons a “terrifying prospect” — coming as it did following years of “careful” decommissioning.

“It’s like the Cold War all over again,” the host said. “But this time everyone’s on Russia’s side.”

19 Reasons Your Obsession With Dev Patel Is Justified

We need to talk about Dev Patel

The 26-year-old British Indian actor could walk away with the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in “Lion.” In the film, Dev plays Saroo Brierley, a man desperately searching for his family in India after being separated from them at the age of 5. 

It’s a great, fiery performance that deserves recognition in and of itself, but there’s another reason we’re rooting for him. Just read this tweet:

That is a huge deal. On-screen representation matters, and it’s especially important for Asian actors. According to a 2016 diversity study, Asian actors nabbed only 3.9 percent of speaking roles in film ― a stark contrast from the 73.7 percent white actors receive.

That’s not the only reason we’re pulling for Dev to win an Oscar, though. Below, a few reasons why we’re obsessed with the Oscar-nominated actor: 

— Before receiving all this Oscar buzz for “Lion,” Dev was in 2008’s massive hit “Slumdog Millionaire” and was equally amazing in that. Remember when he danced like this and low-key stole your heart? 

— He was also great on HBO’s “The Newsroom,” playing a blogger and the office’s resident computer geek.

— He was super cute back then, of course.

— But right around the time of “The Newsroom,” something began to change. Our nerdy-cute pretend boyfriend started to grow into his looks in a major way. It’s like one day the hair gods smiled down at Dev and said, “Hey, ‘Slumdog’ guy, it’s time to grow out that hair and drive everyone crazy with lust for your locks.” 

And grow it out he did. The swooshy-hair era began and nothing has been the same since. Dev has pretty much blossomed into full babe mode now. 

Woah, right?

— Those curls.

Seriously, THOSE CURLS.

— And dat smile.

— He also has a beautiful, classical profile. And the beard is good, too. (Let’s give credit where credit is due, guys.)

— He’s so good at posing for photo shoots, his side hustle should be modeling. (But please don’t stop acting, Dev.) 

— Then there’s his accent. Dev pulls off a pretty convincing Aussie accent in “Lion,” but his real-life British lilt will melt your heart.

Sigh. Please never stop touching your hair.

— All awards season long, Dev has been a big booster of Sunny Pawar, the adorable 8-year-old who plays the younger version of his character in “Lion.”

Like, he literally boosts him up: 

Sunny very impressively carries the first half of “Lion” all by himself and Dev gives him credit for that every chance he gets.

“He’s so incredible in this film, and I share this nomination with him in a big way,” Dev told the Los Angeles Times recently. 

Don’t pretend you weren’t deeply affected by the cuteness of their introduction of “Lion” at the Golden Globes. 

Same, girl, same. 

— Who’s he taking to the Oscars? Apparently, his mom, Anita. “That’s her moment,” he told the LA Times. “I’m her guest.”

D’aww. Here they are at a 2009 British awards party.

Gotta love a man who respects his mama.

— We also want him to win because we’re positive he’d be so humble and bashful during his acceptance speech. Just look at how he reacted to his name being called for his SAG award nomination. 

— And in spite of all the Oscar buzz surrounding him, Dev realizes we’re living in politically tumultuous times and there’s weightier things happening in the world right now. Here’s what he told the LA Times on the SAG Awards red carpet:

“At times like this, you’re constantly questioning what you’re doing at awards like this or promoting a movie. It feels so pointless. I look to the people around me and they remind me the message of this film, of the art we’re trying to inject into the world right now. It’s about unification,” he added. “When I think about that, it makes me have a little bit more strength.”

— Oh, and another thing: He’s an animal lover. (Dev + doggo = happy us. And loud squee-ing noises, to be honest.)  

— On another shallow note, boy fills out a suit quite well. 

— And in case you were wondering, he has a mean street-style game, too.

— We’re in good company in our Dev devotion. Ellen DeGeneres gave him the title of “Sexiest Man Alive” when he visited the show back in January. So well deserved, even if Dev was like, “Aw, shucks, me?”

And his “Lion” co-star Nicole Kidman recognizes his swag as well. 

Watch out, Keith Urban.

— Heck, even his ex-girlfriend and “Slumdog Millionaire” co-star Freida Pinto gave him props on Instagram for his Best Supporting Actor Oscar nom.

So clearly, he’s best supporting ex-boyfriend, too.

Now would be a good time to mention what a ridiculously good-looking couple they were a few years back.

So pretty.

— Lastly, Dev’s work on “Lion” didn’t end when he was done filming. He’s been busy promoting #LionHeart, a social impact campaign which will provide financial support to the over 11 million children who live on the streets of India. Here’s our boy asking people to contribute: 

In conclusion, Dev Patel is a super talented actor and a stand-up guy with amazing hair. 

Cheers to you, Dev. We’re pulling for you and your epic curls Sunday night!

Stephen Colbert Summarizes This Year’s Oscar-Nominated Movies, Based Solely On Their Posters

Turns out “Lion” is literally about two lovers from the wrong sides of the tracks. (Well, according to Colbert, anyways).

U.S. Blocks Young Syrian ‘White Helmets’ Cinematographer From Oscars

The Department of Homeland Security at the last minute has decided to bar a young Syrian cinematographer from entering the U.S. to attend The Oscars Sunday. The civil-war documentary he risked his life to work on has been nominated for an award.

Khaled Khatib, 21, had obtained a visa and was due to fly to Los Angeles via Istanbul Saturday. But U.S. officials suddenly said they’d found unspecified “derogatory information” linked to Khatib, The Associated Press reported Saturday. Khatib was detained in Turkey, and he now needs a passport waiver to enter the U.S., which he will not be able to obtain, according to internal Trump administration documents seen by the AP. “Derogatory information” is a broad category that can be something serious to passport irregularities. It’s not clear why Khatib was detained in Turkey.

Khatib was a cinematographer on the 40-minute Netflix documentary “White Helmets,” which has been nominated for Best Documentary, Short Subject. It follows rescue workers for the Syrian Civil Defense White Helmets, who have saved tens of thousands of lives during the nation’s bloody civil war. The group was founded in 2012 after a Syrian Air Force attack on civilians. It was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2016. Khatib, who started filming the workers when he was just 16, is also a volunteer with the group. 

Some 120 White Helmets have been killed in recent years, including Khaled Omar, known as the “miracle baby rescuer” in Aleppo, after pulling an infant out alive from the rubble of the baby’s home in 2014. Omar was killed in an airstrike in 2016. 

“White Helmets” director Orlando von Einsiedel had made a plea to the U.S. to allow those who had worked on and been featured in the film to attend the Oscars. The experience would not only be rewarding for them, he said, but with the world “so divided we could all learn from the White Helmets’ message od compassion and dignity.” After a court halted President Donald Trump’s travel ban, the filmmakers revived plans to bring Khatib and White Helmets leader Raed Saleh to Los Angeles.

Saleh will also not be attending now because of the demand of work in Syria.

Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, whose movie “The Salesman” is up for Best Foreign Language Film, said last month that he would not attend the awards ceremony because of Trump’s controversial ban.

But Farhadi and the directors of the other four movies in the foreign language category issued an angry statement on Friday blasting America’s “climate of fanaticism and nationalism.” It’s unlikely the directors yet had word that Khatib would not be allowed to attend the Oscars.

“The fear generated by dividing us into genders, colors, religions and sexualities as a means to justify violence destroys the things that we depend on — not only as artists but as humans: the diversity of cultures, the chance to be enriched by something seemingly ‘foreign’ and the belief that human encounters can change us for the better,” their statement reads

“These divisive walls prevent people from experiencing something simple but fundamental: from discovering that we are all not so different.”

Regardless of “who wins the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film on Sunday, we refuse to think in terms of borders,” they wrote. “We believe there is no best country, best gender, best religion or best color. We want this award to stand as a symbol of the unity between nations and the freedom of the arts. Human rights are not something you have to apply for. They simply exist — for everybody.”

Khatib was looking forward to traveling to the Oscars. “If we win this award, it will show people across Syria that people around the world support them,” he said when he announced his plans to attend this month. “It will give courage to every volunteer who wakes up every morning to run towards bombs.” 

“If I cannot enter the U.S., I will not give up,” he added. “We know that we have many friends in the U.S., that there are people that share our humanitarian values. I look forward to meeting them all one day.”

It appears Kourtney Kardashian is taking notes from Yeezus

On Friday, the mother-of-three shared a clip on her Snapchat, walking viewers through her sister Khloe’s home. At one point, she goes up the stairs to reveal what appears to be a large framed photo of herself in the image of Jesus crucified on the cross, just casually hanging on the wall. 

The Kardashians have not hidden their Christian beliefs ― they were the topic of an interview with Oprah in 2012 ― but we’re going to go ahead and say this probably doesn’t represent living in the image of God.

Hugh Jackman Might Still Be Wolverine If He Was an Avenger

Logan appears to be Hugh Jackman’s final bow as Wolverine (and a very good one too), but it might not have been so if the Marvel comics universe wasn’t as fragmented as it is in the movie world.

Speaking to ScreenRant, Jackman explained that, had there been a chance to appear in an Avengers movie, things might have ended differently:

“If that was on the table when I made my decision

The FCC just gave you a reason to hold off on buying a 4K TV

The FCC just gave you a reason to hold off on buying a 4K TVOver-the-air 4K broadcasts are coming, but you might want to hold off at getting a new UHD set just yet. The Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday to open discussions on the deployment of a next-generation broadcast-TV standard that should offer picture quality up to 4K Ultra High Definition and better antenna reception than today’s over-the-air digital signals. Like 2009’s transition to digital TV signals, this upgrade’s primary sales pitch is about a better picture — not just high definition, but the Ultra High Definition (UHD) 4K resolution that today remains largely confined to streaming-video services and Blu-ray discs.

Ashley and JP Up in Flames? See How the Bachelorette Couple Confronts Issues Wrecking Their Relationship

Ashley and J.P. Rosenbaum aren’t necessarily known for having fiery marital spats, but that could soon change.

In an exclusive sneak peek at Friday’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, the Bachelorette couple participates in a therapeutic exercise, acknowledging their anxieties, weaknesses and personal roadblocks, in order to move toward accepting their flaws.

Ashley admits she struggles with social anxiety and becoming overly emotional. And while J.P. owns that he doesn’t understand her neuroses, he also confesses to being frustrated that he’s “not made a priority.”

He acknowledges in a separate interview with Ashley that, “In the last year and a half ever since we had our son, it’s been all about him, but we can’t forget about us as a couple.”

After airing their relationship grievances, which are written on papers, the couple symbolically sets them all aflame so they can set themselves free once and for all.

J.P. met Ashley (née Hebert) and won her heart on The Bachelorette in 2011. They married in December 2012 and had their first child, Fordham Rhys, on Sept. 30, 2014. This past November, they welcomed daughter Essex Reese, and Rosenbaum tweeted at the time that little Essie “Already has me wrapped around her little finger. I’m in trouble!”

Skies Slowly Brightening for Retailers Shopping Las Vegas Men’s Shows

LAS VEGAS — The fourth quarter wasn’t pretty for most retailers. Pre- and post-election angst, unrelenting price promotions, pressure from aggressive online players and a distracted consumer all contributed to a rough end to 2016.
But retailers aren’t about to roll over. To fight back, they’re scouring the market for new brands and hot trends that will move the needle. They’ve also learned that it’s not just about offering men the latest in ath-leisure or technical tailored clothing. Today’s customer is seeking unique experiences and merchandise with an authentic story that will allow them to create their own unique style — and make a statement.
Trade show operators are also shifting their focus in the face of this new reality.
Case in point: Aaron Levant, founder of Agenda, upped the ante on experiences at his trade show this season by featuring more cash-and-carry than ever before — Generation Cool, a vintage store based in Tucson, Ariz., set up a lively booth for shoppers. Levant also created an area where brands, some that don’t wholesale, were able to design their own booth. The space felt more like an art fair than a trade show.
“It’s about experiences and community,” said Levant, who last year helped

Giorgio Armani Ceases Collezioni, Jeans Labels

MILAN — Giorgio Armani said he plans to consolidate his various collections under three labels, as the fashion company undergoes an internal restructuring.
“There will only be three lines: Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani and A|X Armani Exchange starting with the fall-winter 2018 season,” the designer said backstage following his Emporio Armani show.
Armani Collezioni and Armani Jeans will be blended into those main three lines.
“There was too much confusion with so many collections,” said the designer. “Times have changed and we have to evolve.”

Emporio Armani RTW Fall 2017

There was a lot going on in this Emporio Armani collection – and yet there were opportunities missed.
Giorgio Armani said his aim was to “turn a page,” and design a wardrobe for the modern woman that’s distinctive, of the moment – something people will look back on and say: “That was the look of 2017.” He believes there is no defining fashion of today – and that what people wear is “too reminiscent of past decades.”
In an effort to move that conversation forward, Armani showed off a wide-ranging collection that was full of long lines – especially sweeping black skirts, some with hoops in their hems or snaking white embroidery, and less formal ones layered under slouchy branded sweaters.
There were plastic pieces aplenty; long skirts with big slits up the side, and transparent tailored jackets and trousers, while splashes of vibrant color – pink, red and green – appeared in Matisse-like cutout patterns, or florals, on dark jackets.
An endless black-and-white checkerboard pattern popped on furs, floppy coats and trousers, while busy florals blossomed over skirts and tops. Then came the layering: Leathery or brightly patterned trousers were worn under lace tunic tops and short jackets with colored piping.
High points included little black or red

Cult Gaia Branches Into Ready-to-Wear

Cult Gaia, the whimsical L.A. accessories firm that’s gained a following for its bamboo handbags, is expanding into ready-to-wear.
For fall, the brand will launch a contemporary collection that is being shown to retailers this week in New York. The line is manufactured entirely in Los Angeles. Although the brand has dabbled in apparel in the past, it’s the first time it is wholesaling a rtw collection.
Jasmin Larian, Cult Gaia’s founder, owner and designer, explained that she wanted to launch apparel because she had been making her own clothes and thought it would give “a holistic image” to her brand. Her goal is to create “seasonless clothes for women to wear over and over again,”  she said.
“I don’t want people to think twice [about buying them]. It’s a feeling of something they have to have,” she said.
Among the key pieces are white cotton wrap pajama pants; viscose/cotton cropped sweaters; turtleneck bodysuits; white stretch denim wrap mini-skirts; cashmere blend off-the-shoulder sweater dresses; camel wool double cloth tieback jumpsuits, and silk jersey criss-cross gowns.
“It’s young, but elevated and super sexy,” said Larian, who graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology and interned at Jason Wu and Narciso Rodriguez. There are also subtle details,

Oprah Winfrey Says ‘I Wouldn’t Have Been A Good Mom For Babies’

Oprah Winfrey has been a mother of sorts to millions of TV viewers ― but the magnate and activist said having children of her own wouldn’t have been a good idea.

I wouldn’t have been a good mom for babies,” the 63-year-old former talk show host said in an April issue preview of Good Housekeeping U.K., posted Friday. “I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage!”

Winfrey now uses motherly instincts to direct her Leadership Academy boarding school in Johannesburg, South Africa. She has 172 girls enrolled ― 20 of whom attend college in the United States and use her residence as a home away from home.

“When people were pressuring me to get married and have children, I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them, because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children,” she told the magazine. “Love knows no boundaries. It doesn’t matter if a child came from your womb or if you found that person at age 2, 10 or 20. If the love is real, the caring is pure and it comes from a good space, it works.”

Winfrey, who lost a child just weeks after birth when she was 14, has opened up previously about forgoing parenthood. “If I had kids, my kids would hate me,” she said in a 2013 interview. “They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would’ve probably been them.”

Billboard Proclaiming Role Of ‘Real’ Men And Women Sows A Sexist Mystery

A billboard in North Carolina declares a very strong opinion on “real” men and women ― and it has a lot of people talking about gender roles and family households.

The billboard along a Winston-Salem highway reads in large print, with no other context: “Real men provide. Real women appreciate it.”

An anonymous group leased the billboard for at least 30 days, The Associated Press reported.

Bill Whiteheart, president of the advertising company that owns the billboard, told CNN the group that purchased the $ 2,000 ad space wants to stay anonymous. 

“We’re not supportive of or in opposition to the message,” Whiteheart told CNN. “We’re just the messenger.”

The billboard’s message, however, has offended some local residents. Boutique owner Molly Grace has created a Facebook event scheduled for Sunday morning to protest the billboard.

“I take it as a very deliberate jab at women who demand equality and demand to be seen as equals and those who are vocal,” Grace told local news station WXII-12. “To me, it’s also a very blatant statement about wanting to silence women and tell them to accept the way that things are.”

But not everyone thinks the sign is offensive. In fact, Grace’s Facebook event page has become a platform for debate on what the sign actually means.

Some argue that the sign devalues women who are breadwinners for their families and single women who provide for themselves. Others say the sign appears to be a derogatory statement against men who don’t provide for their families

“I would assume if you had a husband that loves you and appreciates you and showed it enough to carry your family and kids, that you would appreciate it,” resident Nathan Walin told WHNT News 19. “I don’t know why that would be offensive.

Heated discussions on the Facebook event page often touch on the lifestyle choices of single mothers, stay-at-home mothers and single working women. Grace clarified on Facebook that Sunday’s protest is about the sign’s “choice of words.”

“The sentiment that has upset SO many people…is the notion that these roles, on the billboard at least, are limited by their assigned gender,” Grace wrote on the Facebook event page.

Whiteheart, the owner of the billboard, said an announcement about the billboard would be coming. He didn’t elaborate, according to AP.

Colbert’s Response To Trump Revoking Trans Bathroom Rights Is ‘Golden’

The Trump administration issued an order this week that would repeal an Obama administration policy allowing transgender students to use the bathroom that corresponds to their sexual identities. 

It’s a decision that could cause irreparable harm to trans students, so regardless of where he’s supposed to go to the bathroom, Stephen Colbert took a dump on President Donald Trump.

“We should’ve seen this coming because if there’s one thing Trump is famous for, it’s telling people where to pee,” said Colbert, referring to the unsubstantiated (but hilarious) claim that Trump had prostitutes perform a “golden shower” in front of him.

Colbert continued ripping on the Trump administration, pointing out that the president was previously in favor of trans bathroom rights. When asked on the campaign trail if Caitlyn Jenner could use whatever bathroom she wanted at Trump Tower, the president said, “That is correct.”

“Which is good,” added Colbert, “Because I’m guessing right now a lot of trans people would love to take a dump in Trump’s lobby.”

Jack Black Calls On Hollywood To ‘Talk More S**t’ About Trump At The Oscars

Jack Black, for one, hopes to see a repeat of that powerful Golden Globes speech during the Oscars on Sunday. 

“Is Meryl Streep in the audience tonight?” Black asked an audience of celebrities at a benefit concert in Los Angeles on Thursday night, warming up the crowd before diving into a song from “School of Rock.” 

“I just hope she wins the Oscar and talks some more s**t about that asshole,” he added, with a reference to President Donald Trump that prompted cheers. The group assembled at Los Angeles’ No Name included director Paul Haggis, musicians Moby and Jenny Lewis, and actors Jeff Bridges, Rita Wilson and Jeremy Renner, per The Hollywood Reporter.

He added: “So, if she doesn’t win, to the winners in here, I hope you do the same, ya know?” 

“A lot of people say, ‘Oh, that’s just liberals patting themselves on the back,’” Black said about the reaction to Streep’s comments, which inspired a couple tweets from the president himself

“I don’t agree. I thought it took balls. Thought she was very brave. I was very inspired by it. To get up there and tell the truth about the president of the United States in front of a billion people — that takes courage, and it’s very inspiring.”

Others in Hollywood wholeheartedly agreed

While host Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t seem keen on making a grand political statement, we can’t know what to expect from the night’s biggest winners. 

The Oscars will kick off with red carpet coverage on Sunday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. ET on ABC.

Kate Upton Reveals Game-Day Sex Strategy With Fiance Justin Verlander

Here’s a sure way to strike out if you’re dating Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander: Expect sex before or after a game.

Sports Illustrated cover model Kate Upton, the baseball star’s fiancee, revealed details of the couple’s love life on “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen on Wednesday.

“There’s no sex before a game, absolutely none,” Upton said.

“Also what I’ve just found is if he plays too well, there’s no sex after either,” she added later. “He’s too exhausted, kind of a buzzkill for me.”

Upton has referenced the couple’s sex life before, tweeting this in response to Verlander losing the Cy Young Award vote.

Tracee Ellis Ross Looks Like An Angel In This Playfully Sheer Gown

There’s sheer, and then there’s sheer perfection.

Tracee Ellis Ross followed up a fringe-tastic showing earlier this week with a stunning, transparent mock-neck gown with a tiered skirt and bustier-style bra at Essence’s Black Women in Hollywood awards on Thursday.

Ross, who joined the likes of Viola Davis, Issa Rae and Janelle Monae at the star-studded event, one-upped her own style with a flawless hair and makeup look. We love this combo of updo, pink lip and fierce brow. 

The look’s playful nature was not lost on Ross, who captioned a photo of herself from the event “#DollBaby .”

Hot Men Do Yoga in Kilts in This Borderline NSFW Video You Didn’t Know You Needed to See

There’s goat yoga, ganja yoga and Drake yoga — and now there’s kilted yoga, which may just top all the others.

BBC The Social created a 57-second video of Scotland-based Forrest Yoga teacher Finlay Wilson and his student Tristan Cameron-Harper (who also happens to be a professional ice hockey player and Mr. Scotland 2016) performing a series of yoga poses in kilts and — spoiler alert — they are not wearing any underwear while doing them.

The video — which has been viewed over 123,000 times since it posted on Monday — shows the two bearded, shirtless men performing their poses in an idyllic forest setting.

Rodd & Gunn to Open Store in Brooklyn

Rodd & Gunn, a New Zealand-based men’s wear brand, will open its second U.S. store in New York City in March.
The 3,200-square-foot store at 81 Front Street in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn joins a flagship that opened in Fashion Island in Newport Beach, Calif., in October.
Rodd & Gunn operates 85 stores in New Zealand and Australia, but entered the American market as a wholesaler.
Asked why the brand chose Brooklyn instead of Manhattan for its East Coast debut, Mike Beagley, chief executive officer, said, “We weren’t really looking at opening on the East Coast, but this opportunity came up and we thought it was a great way of commencing in New York quickly. It is an amazing building in an iconic location that we believe is an emerging retail and lifestyle area of Brooklyn – incredibly high average household income and literally a stone’s throw from Wall Street.”
He said the California store has performed “exceptionally well and we are really happy in how the Newport Beach community has embraced us. We are trading well above plan and selling all of our categories from hand-made in New Zealand luggage to outerwear and footwear.”
Beagley said the plan calls for opening eight to 10

Los Angeles Girl-About-Town Paige Elkington Launches Handbag Line

Los Angeles-based PYT Paige Elkington is off to the races.
The model-slash-actress — who recently appeared in one of Playboy magazine’s new fashion-inclined photo shoots — has launched a handbag line inspired by equestrian competition ribbons.
The pin-tucked mementos provided strong visual reference to Elkington — a former equestrian herself.

Model Paige Elkington Launches Handbag Line 

“I did [ride horses] but I also just love the ribbons so much. It’s more about a love for those ribbons. Everyone has been doing a fun clutch, a fun bag [recently] and that kind of took over — those bags really spoke to me, I’ve never carried a normal purse. I wanted to make something that represented me and my style,” she said.
The petite, vegan handbags are being sold direct-to-consumer through Elkington’s web site. The bags, which are made in New York of upcycled, dead-stock fabrics, are priced at $ 525.
Each bag comes with a detachable strap, and is lined in contrast fabric.
While the style is currently available in two colors — red and blue — Elkington has a bigger goal in mind.
“My ideal plan is to make them customizable, where you can choose your color and also get initials embroidered on the center and pick the thread color.

Theia RTW Fall 2017

Creative director Don O’Neill’s latest Theia collection considered two important factors: retail performance and the current political climate. He homed in on evening silhouettes, which have performed well for the brand, adding pearls as the “new embroidery” in Theia’s universe of shine and sparkle.
O’Neill is enamored with pearls as symbols of purity, wisdom and strength of spirit. In this time of unrest, he believes women are in need of empowerment in any form. And now more than ever, he wanted to underscore the brand’s message of inner confidence and tenacity. To that end, pearls were embroidered on everything, as cascading maximal embellishment on a fitted stretch-jersey gown that the designer insisted was comfortable, not restricting, to long sleeves with an armorlike quality, fashioned in the vein of renaissance knights going into battle.
His vivid palette of cranberry, burgundy, teal and midnight drew from the work of Dutch photographer Alexander James, and was seen on gowns with modern shapes and trendy sleeves. Key to the brand are hand-beaded gowns that provide a unique quality customers appreciate, like laser-cut petals stitched onto a column gown with Swarovski crystals. The sleekest of the offerings was a double-printed velvet — printed first with gold foiling, then again with silver

MAGIC Fall 2017 Fashion Trends: Statement Sleeves

Echoing runway offerings, assortments at UBM’s MAGIC trade show place strong emphasis on sleeves for fall. Dramatic shapes and fresh details make arms key focal points, with volume reigning supreme and tweaked constructions providing edge and interest.
With designers like Chloé, Carven and 3.1 Phillip Lim fueling their momentum in recent seasons, bell silhouettes have now gained prominence at MAGIC and are leading garments in the bohemian direction that’s beloved by juniors and young contemporary markets, while evoking retro Sixties and Seventies aesthetics. A key look for resort and one that’s sure to dominate next summer’s music festivals, flared sleeves appear on dresses, jackets and tops — knit or woven, with updates ranging from tiers created by drawstrings, as featured on a crepe number by Evidnt, to pleating at the elbows of a Free People blouse.
For shoppers who gravitate toward delicate aesthetics, large flounces soften button-ups when placed along dropped-shoulder seams and oversize ruffles are reshaped into billowy, poet-style poufs. While speaking to current tastes, these sleeves are also classically romantic and appeal to feminine women of all ages.
Texture now replaces color as designers’ blocking method of choice, which translates into sleeves in contrasting fabrics or knit patterns. Tactile surfaces, as well as volume, are also accomplished via rows of ruffles or fringe — a

Here’s Why Donald Trump Won’t Be Watching The Oscars

President Donald Trump likely won’t be watching the Academy Awards on Sunday night because, duh.

But we’ll let White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer share the official reason why:

I think Hollywood is known for being rather far to the left in its opinions, and I’ve got to be honest with you, I think the president will be hosting the Governors’ Ball that night. Mrs. Trump looks forward to putting on a phenomenal event. And the first lady’s put a lot of time into this event, in welcoming our nation’s governors to the capital, and I have a feeling that’s where the president and first lady are going to be focused on Sunday night.

The former reality star has fired up feuds with the likes of Meryl Streep (who’s nominated) and has also gotten roasted at previous award shows, so he probably isn’t feeling chummy with show business right about now. Plus, given the anti-administration yuks that will likely spill forth at the Oscars, perhaps Trump wants to spare his ego.

While he may not tune in, we have a sneaking suspicion that the commander-in-chief won’t tune out what transpires on Oscar night. Got that, Twitter?

He apparently hasn’t been such a fan of the ceremony anyway, tweeting in 2014 that it was “amateur night” and “bullshit.” In 2015, he issued this politicized critique:

People Want To Move To The Newly Found Planets To Escape Donald Trump

NASA scientists caused a stir when they announced the discovery of seven previously unknown Earth-sized planets on Wednesday.

And with the TRAPPIST-1 solar system a mere 39 light years away, it didn’t take long for hundreds of Twitter users to declare they’d be moving there to escape Donald Trump’s presidency:

Some tweeters took a different approach by suggesting that Trump could himself be sent there, alone, as a test:

Others used the news to throw shade on Trump’s controversial immigration policies, including his proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall and imminently rewritten travel ban:

Some social media users just imagined Trump’s reaction to the discovery:

Plenty of others, meanwhile, just used it to mock the intelligence of Trump and the members of his administration:

A Beginner’s Guide To Isabelle Huppert

If anyone scores Best Actress over front-runner Emma Stone at Sunday’s Oscars, it’ll probably be 63-year-old “Elle” star Isabelle Huppert. For some at home, it would make for the night’s most exciting moment. For others, it’ll incite a shrug and a big ol’ “Who?!” 

If you’re in the latter camp, I’m here to help. It’s high time you know that Isabelle Huppert is a certified legend. 

She’s France’s most decorated actress.

Huppert has more nominations (16) from the César Awards, France’s equivalent of the Oscars, than any other actress. (One more and she’ll tie record holder Gérard Depardieu, her co-star from 1974’s “Going Places,” 1980’s “Loulou” and 2015’s “Valley of Love.”) Phrased differently, Huppert is France’s Meryl Streep. 

Really, Huppert and Streep have little in common apart from their prestige. Where Streep often plays outsized characters, Huppert is an actress of small proportions ― her performances are relatively restrained, even minimalistic. Roger Ebert described her characters as “repressed, closed-off, sexually alert women” who are “not safe to scorn.” 

Despite her 45-year movie career and 46-year theater career, this is Huppert’s first Oscar nomination. For fans, a win would double as a de facto lifetime achievement recognition. 

“Doing movies for me is like a vacation,” Huppert said in 2014. “Stage for me is like climbing a big mountain, and movies for me is like doing a nice little walk.”

One of her movies caused a minor firestorm last year.

In “Elle,” Huppert plays a video-game executive who refuses to grieve after being raped in the film’s opening scene. Instead, she turns the assault into a game of cat and mouse, luring her attacker into a seductive power play. That’s angered some critics and moviegoers, particularly women, who feel the character’s response is a disservice to rape victims. Huppert disagrees. 

“She does not fall into the caricature of the classical vengeful woman taking the gun and shooting the guy, the James Bond type,” Huppert told me last October during the New York Film Festival. “Maybe that’s what certain persons would expect from her, but then that would follow precisely a male pattern. That’s why I would call her a postfeminist character, making her own way. … In a way, it is a revenge film. … It’s like giving birth to a new prototype of a woman. Of course it’s a fiction character and it’s certainly not someone you would meet walking in the subway, meaning it’s not a completely realistic character. But it’s a very, very special character. Even in fiction, you’ve never seen someone like her.”

Huppert is even more subdued in her second movie of 2016, “Things to Come,” portraying a philosopher facing professional setbacks and an impending divorce. 

“As a performer, it’s my natural instinct to put this kind of irony, no matter what I do,” she said when discussing the film. “It certainly also avoids any sentimentality or sentimentalism or psychological heaviness.” 

She’s worked with great directors on both sides of the pond. 

For “Elle,” Huppert partnered with Paul Verhoeven, the Dutch shlock master known for “Total Recall,” “Basic Instinct” and “Showgirls.” Verhoeven is the latest in a long line of veteran filmmakers who have sought out Huppert’s enigmatic screen presence. 

Early in her career, Huppert was associated with masters of the French New Wave, a group of socially conscious filmmakers who introduced open-ended narrative structures and radical techniques in the 1950s and ‘60s. After breaking out with 1977’s “The Lacemaker,” which earned her BAFTA’s Most Promising Newcomer prize, Huppert won the Cannes Film Festival’s best actress accolade for playing a nefarious 18-year-old sex worker in “Violette Nozière.” That marked the first of Huppert’s seven collaborations with director Claude Chabrol, a father of the French New Wave movement. 

Huppert would soon work with Jean-Luc Godard, another French New Wave pioneer, on 1980’s “Every Man for Himself” and 1982’s “Passion.” In between, Huppert’s American debut, the nearly four-hour western “Heaven’s Gate,” became one of the most controversial projects of all time when it effectively bankrupted United Artists. Hot off the Oscar-winning Vietnam War epic “The Deer Hunter,” director Michael Cimino insisted on casting Huppert despite studio executives’ protests that she was “too French” and “simply wrong.” In his 1999 book about the “Heaven’s Gate” debacle, former United Artists honcho Stephen Bach wrote that he told Cimino, “For Christ’s sake, Michael. [Kris Kristofferson] and [Christopher Walken] are so much more attractive than she is that the audience will spend the entire film wondering why they’re fucking her instead of each other!” Cimino then run amok with the budget, calling for elaborate set designs and extensive reshoots. The movie bombed, earning $ 3.5 million domestically off an estimated $ 44 million budget. Suffering financial loss as a result, UA was sold to a private investment corporation and acquired by MGM in 1981.

The 1987 drama “Story of Women” is one of Huppert’s most distinguished performances. The movie, a favorite of John Waters, tells the true story of Marie-Louise Giraud, a meager housewife who was guillotined in Nazi-occupied France for performing abortions. It earned a Golden Globe nod for Best Foreign Language Film, and Huppert picked up the Venice Film Festival’s best actress honor.

In 1995, after seven losses, Huppert won her first ― and, to date, only ― César Award, for the Chabrol-directed crime mystery “La Cérémonie.” The true story on which it’s based ― two maids who murdered their employer in 1933 France ― was also the source of a 1947 play by Jean Genet, a 2013 revival of which starred Huppert, Cate Blanchett and Elizabeth Debicki.

The 2000s and 2010s have brought about some of Huppert’s most acclaimed parts, namely Michael Haneke’s erotic thriller “The Piano Teacher” (often cited as her finest performance), David O. Russell’s quirky existential dramedy “I Heart Huckabees,” and supporting spots in Haneke’s old-age romance “Amour” and Ned Benson’s dual-perspective relationship drama “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.” 

She also starred on an episode of “Law and Order: SVU.”

Playing a mother whose kidnapped son dies, Huppert goes bonkers on Mariska Hargitay. Exemplifying America’s disregard, NBC’s promo for the 2010 episode touts Sharon Stone as a guest star, but not Huppert.

We don’t know much about Huppert’s personal life.

Here’s something else Huppert has in common with Meryl Streep: Both have children from long marriages ― Huppert’s dates back to 1982, and Streep’s to 1978. Beyond that, we don’t know a ton of gossip about either, which contributes to their indestructible statures in the film world. 

Huppert has three children, including actress Lolita Chammah. They starred together in the 2010 comedy “Copacabana.” Her husband, the Lebanon-born Ronald Chammah, directed Huppert in 1988’s “Milan Noir.”

Critical appraisals have always been glowing, often noting her alluring inscrutability as an actress.

“As in everything else she is called upon to do in this film, Isabelle Huppert shows herself to be a superb actress, able to convey in every gesture, in every utterance and facial expression, that special combination of passivity and violence that is the essential mark of Violette’s personality. So persuasive is her performance of this role that even in those moments when she is most nakedly wicked, she continues to puzzle and even enchant us with her air of innocence and indifference.” ― The New York Times, on “Violette Nozière” (1978)

“It is the unique ability of Isabelle Huppert to betray almost nothing to the camera, when she chooses to. Some of the best moments in her performances come when she regards the camera as if daring us to guess what she is thinking.” ― Robert Ebert, on “Story of Women” (1990)

“Like Jennifer Jason Leigh, Huppert isn’t afraid to play nasty, unattractive women, and she doesn’t balance her character’s evil with sympathetic, mitigating qualities that would make us pity her. … Even as the film builds to a shocking, kick-in-the-guts finale, Huppert never shirks from her sinister goal, never betrays a glimmer of goodness.” ― The San Francisco Chronicle, on “La Cérémonie” (1997)

“Isabelle Huppert gives the performance of her career as Professor Erika Kohut, a distinguished piano teacher and Schubert scholar at the Vienna Conservatory. She is brilliant, demanding, unsmiling.” ― The Guardian, on “The Piano Teacher” (2001)

“This makes Pascale yet another choice role for Ms. Huppert, a hypnotically controlled actress who has become more implacably mysterious as she has gotten older. Her characters never plead for our sympathy or understanding. … She remains one of the most sensual and erotic presences in the cinema, despite a persistent inscrutability of expression.” ― The New York Observer, on “Private Property” (2007)

“One of the most daring and assured of film actresses, Huppert embraces the aloneness, foreignness and impudence of her characters.” ― The Los Angeles Times, on “In Another Country” (2013)

“Though she appears in the fewest scenes, Isabelle Huppert provides the movie with its emotional foundation. … After a prolonged discussion of her troubled double-life, the director cuts to an extreme close-up of her face and holds the shot for close to half a minute, the ambiguity registering on her face speaking volumes about the speculative nature of the plot.” ― IndieWire, on “Louder Than Bombs” (2015)

“To follow the arc described by Isabelle Huppert, for instance, from her breakout role, in ‘The Lacemaker’ (1977), to her new movie, ‘Elle,’ is to ask yourself, year after year, how someone so at ease with the blazing extremes of emotion can also prove so adept at preserving her cool. It is as if she were guarding secrets that no plot can plumb. Who else can match that mystery?” ― The New Yorker, on “Elle” (2016)

She’s meme-worthy.

Japanese Bald Men Celebrate With Cueball Competition

More than 30 bald men gathered at a hot spring facility in Tsuruta City, Japan, on Wednesday to show off their hairless heads and have fun.

Members of the city’s Bald Men Club took turns competing in a unique game of tug-of-war by sticking a suction cup, which is attached to a single red rope, to each of their heads. Both sides then attempt to pull the cup off of their opponent’s head.

“My head still hurts,” Toshiyuki Ogasawara, 43, said with a smile. “I think I need to ice it!”

 

Masatomo Sasaki, 64, a first-time participant at the tournament, said he used to feel insecure about his baldness but now feels differently.

“I feel proud. Or maybe I should say, I feel good about being a bald man,” Sasaki said, adding that he started losing his hair when he was 40. “And that is thanks to this bald men’s club.”

The club, which has attracted roughly 65 members from all over the country since its founding in 1989, encourages people to “view baldness in a positive manner, to have fun, and to brighten the world with our shiny heads,” according to its website.

Teijiro Sugo, 70, the club’s chairman, hopes the gathering will turn into something much larger.

“I want all the bald men all over the world to gather here so we can organize a bald men’s Olympic tournament,” Sugo said.

The event is held every year on Feb. 22.

Rihanna Is Harvard’s Humanitarian Of The Year

As if Rihanna hasn’t contributed enough to the greater good of humanity with more than a decade’s worth of irresistible pop bangers, it’s her work outside the recording booth that’s had the biggest impact. 

Every year, Harvard University selects a leader in public life who’s dedicated themselves to service by honoring them with the Peter J. Gomes Humanitarian Award. On Thursday, Rihanna was named the 2017 honoree for her charitable work promoting healthcare and education in the Caribbean, joining the ranks of actors James Earl Jones and Sharon Stone, as well as former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and activist Malala Yousafzai.

“Rihanna has charitably built a state-of-the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados,” the Harvard Foundation’s director, S. Allen Counter said in a statement. 

In addition to her work in the healthcare sector, the “Love on the Brain” singer is being recognized for creating the Clara Lionel Foundation Scholarship Program, a foundation named after her grandparents that supports Caribbean students attending to college in the U.S. The university also notes Rihanna’s engagement with the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen Project, which aims to ensure children in developing nations have access to an education. Just last year, she headlined the organization’s festival in New York, drawing thousands to Central Park in the name of ending poverty worldwide. 

Those lucky enough to live in the Boston area are welcome to witness Rihanna’s greatness in person when she’s formally presented with the award at Sanders Theatre on Feb. 28. Tickets are free, but bejeweled flasks will not be provided.
